[First few minutes are missing]
Donna: What is that?
Jake: It's a ring. You think Marley will like it?
Sharlene: Please let him live.
John: Sorry I'm late.
Grant: Don't worry about it. No real rush, just a matter of my life or death. Ok, what was the verdict?
John: I think you should read it for yourself.
Grant: I'd rather hear it from you, John.
John: Well, you are not going to die -- not from this virus, anyway.
Grant: Then, that means I'm cured?
John: No, not completely.
Grant: Ok, then what? What -- what am I?
John: You'll start feeling stronger, a little more energetic each day, but it's a long process. It could be several months before this virus is completely out of your system. That is if all goes well.
Grant: It will. It will be great.
John: Yeah, I think you are right according to this report.
Grant: Thank you.
John: No, thank Dr. Hiver. It was his treatment that reversed your condition.
Grant: No, no, I mean, you found out about the treatment, John. You tracked down Dr. Hiver, and if it hadn't been for you and Sharly, ever -- I'm sorry.
John: I did my job.
Grant: No, John.
John: You're a very lucky man, Grant. Since you'll be continuing your treatment with Dr. Frame, I see no reason for us to speak again.
Grant: I understand.
Grant: You know, I remember those first few weeks here at the hospital -- your integrity and your toughness, your unwillingness to compromise. I thought if I lived, you and I would become good friends.
John: So did I.
Paulina: I know you don't like Jake very much.
Jamie: Can we talk about this later, please?
Paulina: And he hasn't been very good to Marley, it's true.
Jamie: Better yet, Paulina, let's not talk about it at all.
Paulina: He should have told her about his feelings a long go.
Paulina: But he's done the right thing now, Jamie, you have to admit.
Jamie: Paulina, you are not listening to me.
Jamie: I'm busy. I have patients.
Paulina: All right, I'll go.
Jamie: Thank you.
Paulina: Jamie, I just want you to know that I had nothing to do with them breaking up. According to Jake, it was over a long time ago.
Jamie: Good-bye, Paulina.
Paulina: You're good friends with Marley, aren't you? Why don't you give her a call in California and see how she is doing?
Jamie: I don't need your advice.
Paulina: I'm sorry.
Jamie: I'm sorry, too. I'm busy, ok?
Paulina: All right. See you later.
Stacey: Sounds like someone is having a bad day.
Jamie: So what else is new?
Stacey: This wouldn't have to do with Jake McKinnon, would it?
Donna: Are you out of your mind?
Jake: Great ring, isn't it?
Donna: You've really snapped, Jake.
Jake: As a matter of fact, I'll bet you didn't think I had such good taste. I'm going to propose to Marley as soon as she gets back.
Donna: Do you want to ruin her life?
Jake: She loves me, Donna. I make her happy.
Donna: You are on the verge of bankruptcy. How can you talk about making her happy?
Jake: Marley is not as mercenary as you, I'm glad to say.
Donna: You have every credit agency in town after you, and you are talking about happiness.
Jake: My money problems will soon be over, thank you very much.
Jake: As a matter of fact, Donna, I'm heading for expansion.
Donna: You are heading for jail. You are into something illegal, aren't you?
Jake: I'm going to succeed in business and marry the woman I love.
Donna: No, you are not -- not again.
Jake: You watch me.
Donna: I'd just as soon watch you get hit by a truck.
Jake: Ooh. Get out.
Donna: You are not going to marry her because she is smart enough not to want to marry you again.
Jake: Get out.
Donna: She is in California raising money for the clinic. She is going to get some perspective, and then she'll realize she has better things to think about than you.
Jake: I know where Marley is, and I'm not worried. You see, Jamie is out of the picture.
Donna: She is in love with Jamie.
Jake: [Scoffs] Whatever gave you that idea?
Donna: Marley did. She told me herself. You may marry her, but you are not going to have her heart.
Jamie: What are you doing here, Stacey?
Stacey: Ooh, you really scared her, huh?
Jamie: I'm warning you -- I'm not in the best mood.
Stacey: Oh, you are scaring me. Want to go get a cup of coffee?
Jamie: Look, instead of coffee, how about dinner tonight?
Stacey: I can't. I'm on my way to the airport.
Jamie: For you.
Jamie: Come on.
Grant: Good news, little brother.
Ryan: You whipped it?
Grant: I got a little way to go, but I'm going to make it.
Ryan: Well, there is only one thing left to do.
Grant: What's that? Call Dad?
Ryan: Then party. We are going to paint this town several different shades of red, and I'm treating. No arguments.
Grant: Oh, wait a minute. I got to make a call first. I got to reach somebody.
Ryan: Gee, I wonder who that could be.
Grant: There's no answer. She told me she was going to be waiting at the farm. She wanted to hear right away.
Ryan: Well, this isn't Sharly. It's Sharlene.
Ryan: So maybe you are being a little unrealistic about her feelings for you.
Grant: No, no, no, no, you're wrong. You're wrong. Look, I've got to find her. She is the reason that I made it. Come on.
Rachel: What are you reading?
Amanda: Cass sent this over. It's, uh -- it's the first draft of the divorce document.
Rachel: Are you all right?
Amanda: It seems weird, you know. I -- I feel like the people in here are two people that I barely know. Sam has refused to cooperate until Alli is back in town. I guess I really shouldn't be surprised. You know, I think the best thing for everybody is to get this over as quickly as possible.
Rachel: I understand Sam has been questioning the staff.
Amanda: Yes, he has.
Rachel: Did he find out anything?
Amanda: Why would he find anything out?
Rachel: Just asking.
Amanda: Mom, nobody is setting him up. What I don't understand is why he keeps trying to clear his name. Why doesn't he just let it go?
Rachel: Maybe he is telling the truth.
Amanda: I'm not going to discuss this again.
Rachel: All right, we won't.
Evan: Hi, Rachel. Listen, whatever you've got planned for the rest of the day, I want you to cancel. I got this big surprise planned.
Amanda: I can't, Evan. I'm sorry.
Evan: What are you talking about?
Amanda: I tried calling you. Your machine wasn't on.
Evan: So what's up?
Amanda: Cass called me this morning. He wants to see Sam and I over at the loft. I'm leaving in a couple of minutes.
Evan: Wait a second, you are telling me that you are going to that loft with Sam?
Rachel: Cass is going to be there. She just said that.
Evan: Yeah, well, I'd feel better if you weren't there alone.
Amanda: We are not going to be alone.
Evan: Well, you better not be.
Amanda: I'll make sure of it. I'll talk to you later, ok? Especially if you have a surprise for me.
Evan: I do. A big surprise.
Amanda: Bye, Mom.
Evan: All right, Rachel. I guess I should be going, too.
Rachel: Evan, just a minute.
Sam: I understand the purpose of the meeting. Ok, I will wait for her here then. No, it's ok. Don't worry about it. I'm sure Amanda and I can handle this in a civilized manner. Ok. Alrighty, bye-bye. That was Cass.
Olivia: I heard you mention a meeting?
Sam: Amanda is coming over.
Olivia: Oh. Well, then I better go. We'll discuss the trip another time.
Sam: Olivia, ah ah ah. We'll talk about this now.
Olivia: I hope you don't think I was being presumptuous.
Sam: Not at all, no.
Olivia: I just think it would be good for you to get away.
Sam: I do, too, and there is nothing more I would like than a tour of Europe. It's just that now is not the right time.
Olivia: But it's only for a couple of weeks. We can go for 10 days -- even shorter.
Sam: Olivia, it's not going to happen.
Olivia: You don't want to go with me?
Sam: I just can't leave in the middle of this.
Olivia: Why not, Sam? Nothing is going the way you want it to. How much more can you take? Look, don't you think it would be better to move on? Get away and start fresh?
Sam: I've got to clear my name.
Olivia: What if you can't?
Sam: I will do it. And with a little help from my friends, I will be able to pick up the pieces and start my life over again.
Olivia: I'll help you. Just tell me what to do.
Sam: The first thing is I need you -- here we are -- to return these tickets.
Olivia: I feel like such a fool.
Sam: Olivia, look at me. You have done nothing foolish. What you did was very sweet.
Olivia: Yeah, and one of the stupidest things I've ever done.
Sam: It was not a stupid idea. It just wasn't the right timing, that's all.
Olivia: Yeah, well, timing is everything, right? That's what they say.
Sam: Hey, we'll do Europe someday together.
Olivia: Do you promise?
Sam: You'd really give up everything to go to Europe with me?
Olivia: Yes. Without a doubt.
[Knock on door]
Olivia: You missed a pretty good deal, Sam Fowler.
Sam: I'm sure I will be kicking myself. Someone is at the door.
Olivia: Yeah, unless I kick you first.
Liz: Where is she? There she is. There you are, and there you are. There you both are. I knew you'd be here. Well, then I knew you'd be here. I was hoping that she wouldn't be here, but unfortunately, I had the feeling that she would be here, and I am correct. She is.
Olivia: Aunt Liz, just calm down. Everything -- I will explain.
Liz: I will not calm down.
Olivia: Well, then lower your voice.
Liz: I will not lower my voice. I will carry on as much as I want to.
Olivia: Oh, great.
Liz: Sam Fowler, you will not take my niece out of this zip code, much less this country. Do you understand?
Sam: Liz, if you would just --
Liz: And you, young lady, who do you think you are? Spending all this money on a man who is never going to amount to a thing.
Olivia: You just stay out of this, Aunt Liz.
Liz: What about Matt Cory? You just hoodwink him into dating you so I wouldn't suspect you and Sam? Was all that lies? You just lead on that lovely, eligible young man?
Olivia: Aunt Liz, please --
Liz: And you -- how did you talk my niece into something like this?
Olivia: He didn't.
Sam: Liz, she is going to return the tickets today, ok?
Olivia: Not that it's any of your business.
Liz: You are my business, Miss Matthews. Thank heavens my friend from the hemisphere travel society had enough respect for me to call me and inform me that my sweet, dear young niece was about to waltz off to Europe with some fugitive.
Olivia: I can't believe you.
Liz: Where did you get the money for this trip?
Olivia: I've saved.
Liz: [Scoffs] You save the way I'm shy. The minute your father sends you a check, you head off to the boutiques.
Olivia: I don't suppose there is any point in asking to talk about this later.
Liz: I am not going anywhere until you explain where you got the money for the trip.
Olivia: I sold something.
Liz: Sold something? What something?
Olivia: It doesn't matter anymore. I'm returning the tickets. Didn't you hear what Sam said?
Liz: What did you sell, Olivia?
Olivia: It was ugly.
Olivia: That old star sapphire necklace that I never wear because it's gaudy and it doesn't go with anything.
Liz: You sold the star sapphire necklace? The exquisite, priceless necklace? It belonged to your great- grandmother Frances McCullers.
Olivia: It was just sitting in my jewelry box.
Liz: It was an heirloom, Olivia! The value of that necklace goes beyond money. What have you done to my niece, Sam Fowler?
Sharlene: Campaign headquarters. Yes, I know I just called. I was wondering if anyone had heard from the congressman yet. I realize I just called 10 minutes ago. I -- but I-- I see. Thank you.
Sharlene: Oh, Grant, I've been so --
Grant: I never imagined that you would be here.
Sharlene: It seemed like hours since you --tell -- what did they tell you?
Grant: It's all going to be ok. I'm going to be ok. I have a future.
Sam: Liz, I didn't know about the tickets.
Olivia: That's the truth, Aunt Liz. I wanted to surprise him.
Liz: Olivia, you are a surprise a minute.
Sam: Liz, the tickets are going to be returned today, and the necklace will be fully redeemed.
Liz: How do you know that? How do you know someone hasn't bought that necklace already?
Olivia: Now, Aunt Liz, I just want you to calm down, get yourself together, and go home.
Liz: I'm not going anywhere until we settle this thing my way.
Olivia: I have never seen you so out of control.
Liz: I have never been told that my niece sold a valued heirloom to take some man to Europe.
Olivia: He is my friend. You have no right to interfere.
Liz: We are getting out of here together.
Olivia: No way.
Liz: I am not going to leave you alone with that man.
Olivia: You have no right to -- to -- to be here, to do anything about this.
Liz: She knows.
Olivia: Great -- Amanda.
Amanda: I know what?
Liz: Sam, for the criminal that he is.
Olivia: Aunt Liz --
Liz: Even though it boggles the mind to think that you've dragged this man into all of our lives, at least now you are doing something right -- you are divorcing him.
Amanda: I really don't appreciate your --
Liz: Oh, nobody appreciates what I think or say or do or know, but if you think it's going to stop me from speaking my mind, you are sadly mistaken. I'll meet you in the car, Olivia. Don't keep me waiting.
Olivia: I guess I better go.
Sam: I don't think you have a choice.
Olivia: I'll speak to you later, Sam.
Sam: Ok. God.
Amanda: What was that?
Sam: Just Liz being Liz. I think she hates me as much as you hate me.
Amanda: Where is Cass?
Sam: He is in court. He called to say he was sorry. He is not going to make it.
Amanda: Oh, I see.
Sam: So it's just the two of us.
Rachel: We've talked about this before, Evan.
Evan: Yeah, I remember.
Rachel: It doesn't seem to have made much of an impression.
Evan: No, it hasn't.
Rachel: So you are not going to stay out of the divorce proceedings between Sam and Amanda?
Evan: Not as long as Sam tries to hold them up, and if he does, I will do everything I can to make sure that it goes through.
Rachel: It's none of your business, Evan. It has nothing to do with you.
Evan: I'll tell you -- when it comes to Amanda, it is my business.
Rachel: You've made it your business.
Evan: You better believe I've made --
Paulina: Oh, excuse me. Hi, Evan.
Evan: Hi, Paulina. How are you?
Paulina: I got way behind. I don't know how. I'm really sorry.
Rachel: It's all right. Sorry about what?
Paulina: Our shopping trip. It's not too late, is it? I can be ready to go in two minutes.
Rachel: Ah, no, we are not going to go anywhere. I had them send the clothes here.
Paulina: You're kidding, right?
Evan: No, don't you understand? You see, if the Corys can't go shopping, the shops come to the Corys.
Rachel: Evan, I'm sure you have better things to do than to stand around taking shots at me. Excuse me, I'm going to go call the shop.
Evan: So, Paulina, everything is going pretty good, huh?
Paulina: Mm-hmm, better than I could have imagined.
Evan: You know, I ran into your employer.
Evan: Yeah, Jake. He was buying some jewelry.
Paulina: He was buying jewelry, huh?
Evan: An engagement ring.
Evan: I think it's for Marley.
Paulina: Oh, yeah?
Evan: Listen, like Rachel said, I got better things to do than sit around and take shots, so I'm going to get out of here. Take care of yourself.
Paulina: See you later, Evan.
Jake's voice: There is something really important I want to talk to you about.
Paulina's voice: Sure.
Jake: We can make up for lost time starting tomorrow. I promise.
Paulina: Oh, Jake.
Paulina: It's going to be all right. I promise you.
Jake: Yeah? Hey, I'm counting on it.
Rachel: Half an hour.
Paulina: What? I' m sorry.
Rachel: Oh, the dresses will be over here in half an hour. Is everything all right?
Paulina: Everything is unbelievable.
Stacey: Ok, now I've got time for half of a cup of coffee.
Jamie: I'm sorry. I got hung up.
Stacey: No time for apologies. Let's just take -- oh.
Donna: Excuse me.
Stacey: Oh, Donna, hi.
Donna: I'm glad I caught you. Jamie I have to speak to you alone.
Stacey: He has an urgent appointment -- Jamie, don't you?
Donna: It's all right. Those can wait. Jamie. You've got to do something.
Jamie: I have no idea what you're talking about, Donna.
Donna: Jake has bought an engagement ring for Marley.
Jamie: He has?
Donna: I know you are in love with Marley. I know she is in love with you.
Donna: Jamie, I know what's really going on with the two of you.
Jamie: Does Marley know about the ring?
Donna: Of course, she doesn't. She is in San Francisco trying to raise money for you and the clinic.
Donna: There's still time, Jamie.
Jamie: I heard Marley was in California, but --
Donna: But what?
Jamie: I didn't think it was to raise money for the clinic.
Donna: Well, what else could it be? How could you doubt that, Jamie? You know how passionately she feels about that clinic.
Jamie: Yeah, well, somebody told me something else.
Donna: Somebody? I wonder who that somebody could be. Surely not Jake.
Jamie: It doesn't matter, ok?
Donna: Yes, it does. It was Jake, wasn't it?
Jamie: Look, Donna, whatever was between Marley and myself is over.
Donna: I know you are confused. You have every right to be confused. Jake has Marley so confused she doesn't even know what to think.
Jamie: Donna, please.
Michael: Donna. What are you doing here?
Michael: Hi, Jamie.
Jamie: Hey, Michael.
Donna: I just came to give Jamie a message about the fundraising for the clinic.
Michael: Oh. Going well, I hope.
Donna: Yes, it's going very well.
Michael: Yeah? You've heard about Grant Harrison?
Jamie: Not yet.
Michael: Grant's going to live.
Jamie: That's fantastic.
Donna: Yes, everybody is going to be very happy.
Michael: Ah, well, I've been authorized by the board to let you know that they are very pleased.
Jamie: Thank you, but John is really the one who deserves the credit. He coordinated everything with Hiver. Look, if you'll excuse me, Stacey is waiting.
Michael: I'll tell you what -- we just -- actually, we are going to take John out for a little celebration. Maybe you'd like to join us?
Jamie: Michael, it sounds like fun, but I'm really bogged down, and Stacey's got a plane to catch.
Michael: Oh, well, I tell you what -- if you change your mind, we are going to be at Tops.
Jamie: Maybe I'll take you up on it. Thank you.
Donna: Why did you invite Stacey?
Michael: Just trying to be gracious. What were you telling Jamie really before I got here?
Jamie: Come on, let's get that cup of coffee.
Stacey: Wait a second -- not until you tell me what's going on around here.
Sharlene: This is the best news.
Grant: For both of us.
Sharlene: Well, I know -- I know what it means for you.
Grant: I can't believe it. I mean, I can't believe it. After not knowing what's beyond tomorrow, I finally -- I finally have a future.
Sharlene: Now, you can throw yourself into your campaign, really commit yourself.
Grant: I wasn't really thinking about politics, Sharlene.
Sharlene: No, Grant, please don't say any more.
Grant: I have to. Do you know what it means to come through that door and find you here? Do you know how much that means to me?
Ryan: Excuse me.
Ryan: I'm sorry, I didn't mean to -- I didn't know anyone was here.
Sharlene: Well, I should go.
Grant: No, no, no, no, please -- please don't go yet. I mean --
Ryan: No, Sharlene, I'm glad you are here. My brother was determined to find you.
Sharlene: Well, I'm sorry, but I've got to go anyway.
Grant: No, no, no, you've got to stay and celebrate the good news.
Ryan: And that's why I'm here. Dad told me to take you out for one fantastic dinner.
Grant: He can't be here, so he is going to sign for the tab. Is that right?
Ryan: Come on, Grant. You know he wanted to be here.
Grant: Mm, but something important came up. Sharlene, come on, you've got to come with us.
Sharlene: Grant, I can't. Really, I can't.
Grant: Why? Are you worried about what people would think? I mean, I could care less. People think that we are friends. What difference does it make?
Sharlene: I can't possibly. I have another appointment with Felicia this afternoon.
Sharlene: At Tops.
Grant: Ah, that settles it. That settles it. We'll all go to Tops.
Ryan: Fine with me.
Sharlene: Grant, I can't.
Grant: I won't take no for an answer. Today is the day that I get everything I want. Come on, come on.
Sam: I'm not sure where to start, really.
Amanda: Me, either. Sam --
Sam: I made a list of things we own jointly so --
Amanda: Maybe we should do this some other time when Cass can be with us.
Sam: You're still afraid of me, aren't you, Amanda?
Amanda: I-I'm -- I'm trying not to be.
Sam: Amanda, look, I am not going to try and kill you, all ri --
Amanda: Just don't yell at me, ok?
Sam: All right, look, here's what I'm going to do. I'm going to open up the door, ok? That way if you want to scream for help, you can go out. Is that better?
Amanda: I'll look at the list that you made.
Sam: What do you think?
Amanda: Well, the loft is yours, of course, Sam.
Sam: Got to have a place to stay.
Amanda: I think you should keep the car.
Sam: Amanda, I gave that to you as a birthday present.
Amanda: Come on, Sam, I know you love that car.
Sam: Look, the car is yours.
Amanda: What are you going to drive?
Sam: I've got my old one.
Amanda: That's a piece of junk. You know it isn't going to last, Sam.
Sam: Amanda, no arguments. You take the new car.
Amanda: What about this cloisonné box?
Sam: Didn't your Mom get us that from Bangkok?
Amanda: She brought back a lot of little boxes.
Sam: Why would I want that?
Amanda: As I recall, you raved about it more than I did.
Sam: I was being polite.
Amanda: Oh, that explains it.
Sam: I really don't care about all this stuff. I'd just like to see Alli inherit it all, that's all.
Amanda: Well, we agree on that.
Amanda: Thank you for cooperating.
Sam: I'm a reasonable man, Amanda -- no matter what Evan says.
Amanda: What about all these CDs and things?
Sam: Remember the night we decided to put our collection together?
Amanda: Yeah, it was a major decision.
Sam: The ultimate commitment.
Amanda: We did that the night after we got back from New York.
Sam: Right, mm-hmm.
Amanda: I'll never forget that trip.
Sam: And you decided against having an abortion.
Amanda: You chased me all over New York City.
Sam: I found you, too. I told you that I loved you, and I wanted to be with you and our baby.
Amanda: Then you asked me to marry you.
Sam: And you said yes. I'll never forget that night. I was sure we would be together forever.
Paulina: This feels so good.
Rachel: Ah, well, now that's more like it.
Paulina: Oh. Oh, Rachel, this is my absolute favorite.
Rachel: Well, we weren't exactly sure whether you did like it.
Paulina: I never want to take it off.
Rachel: It might not be too terribly comfortable to sleep in.
Paulina: What do you think, Rachel?
Rachel: I think it looks smashing.
Paulina: Then can I have it?
Rachel: Of course you can.
Paulina: I'm sorry. Listen to me.
Rachel: No, it's all right. It's very versatile.
Woman: But in this suit, the hair pulled back perhaps -- a more sophisticated look.
Rachel: Yes, that would be nice.
Woman: Mrs. Cory, this is the finest silk shantung.
Rachel: Yes, I can see that.
Paulina: Feels wonderful.
Rachel: Ah, now this is the party dress.
Woman: I've selected a few others, but this one --
Rachel: It is very lovely.
Paulina: Oh, my -- it's beautiful. It's gorgeous. Wow.
Rachel: Oh, no, no, no, don't.
Paulina: Oh, Rachel.
Rachel: Don't look at the price.
Paulina: No, I can't let you buy a dress for this kind of --
Rachel: It is a very special occasion.
Woman: I hope you have a very special man escorting you.
Paulina: Oh, sorry. Yeah, as a matter of fact, I do.
Jake: Are you kidding me? Of course, I didn't forget you, Laurie. No, I've just been -- I've been busting my butt here at work. Oh, soon, very soon. I'd -- well, alas, this phone call is not about pleasure. It's about business. Right, I just want to make sure you're straight with that -- that Paulina Cantrell/Ken Jordan thing. Right. Yeah, well, I just want to make sure that you don't talk to anybody but me about that. No, honey, there's a -- there's a problem with the adoption, and I want to make sure that the agency doesn't get in any trouble. Oh, you don't have to thank me. Soon. Sure, honey.
Jake: Ken Jordan, you didn't cover your tracks, and they lead right to the doorstep of the adoption agency, and I have a signed statement to prove it.
[Knock on door]
Jake: Hi, what can I do for you?
Jake: Excuse me, is there something I can help you out with here?
Man: You owe my company money. I've come to collect.
Sam: Here, you can have this CD. I'll go out and buy another copy.
Amanda: Maybe we should finish this some other time. Oh, my God, I don't believe it.
Sam: Oh. Remember we brought that back from our honey moon in Florida?
Amanda: Whatever possessed me to buy something so silly?
Sam: You said it drew attention from your pregnant stomach.
Amanda: Well --
Sam: Here, put it on. Put it on.
Sam: See? It still looks good on you.
Sam: It's too damn bad, isn't it? We had everything, and you threw it all away.
Michael: So I think we'll have the '69, all right?
Donna: Mike won't have anything in the house but '69.
Michael: Well, it was a very good year. What can I say?
John: Listen, I really appreciate what you are doing, but I don't think that I deserve this.
Donna: You certainly do.
Michael: Hey, look, you don't want to take credit for Grant Harrison's cure -- I understand that -- but you are going to get it.
John: There were a lot of pe... was for you..??
Michael: Right, all the more reason for you to just sit back and enjoy it, man. A lot of good is going to come out of this.
Donna: Yes, I mean, a lot of people are going to have a chance now and have hope.
Michael: Yeah. Not only that, this is going to give your career a real boost, I think.
Donna: So allow us to be proud of you, please.
Michael: Not to mention the fact that this may shut up Elaine Rutherford once and for all.
John: Now, that I will drink to. Where's that champagne?
Donna: Now, you're talking. Oh, I have a better idea -- let's wait on the champagne, and let's order some hors d'oeuvres, and why don't you go call Sharlene?
John: I think she needs some time to herself.
John: I don't even know if I can reach her.
Donna: Oh, please, John.
John: All right, Donna. I'll try.
Donna: Even on a day like today, he can't enjoy himself.
Michael: Oh, well. You want to tell me what you said to Jamie?
Donna: What do you mean?
Michael: Well, uh, I just guess I'm curious as to whether or not you were interfering.
Donna: How could I interfere?
Michael: Oh, Donna, I don't know, but I'm sure you'd figure out some way.
Donna: I needed to tell him something that he had to know.
Michael: Like what?
Donna: It was personal.
Michael: You're not going to tell me?
Donna: No, you don't tell me everything.
Michael: Yeah, but wait a minute here -- this has something to do with Marley, in which case I think I should know.
Donna: Michael, I'm not interfering. Besides, the mess that your activities got Victoria into --
Michael: Ok, ok.
Donna: I don't think we should even talk about that, these accusations here. I think we should just call a truce.
Michael: I give up. You're right. True.
Donna: Truce? Truce.
Donna: Thank you.
Michael: Thank you.
John: No answer.
Donna: Oh, what a shame. Well, we'll just call her back in a few minutes. She probably stepped out for a little while. We'll call her again.
Michael: And now, I would like to propose a toast.
Jamie: So I walked in on them, and they were all over each other.
Jamie: Yeah, well put.
Stacey: Jake and Paulina.
Jamie: It wasn't a one-shot deal, Stacey. I know it.
Stacey: So you think they are having an affair.
Jamie: Jake's business is going down the tubes. He has to do something to kill time. Listen to me. I never used to be this cynical.
Stacey: Sounds like Jake the snake is the cynic.
Jamie: That's why I told Marley.
Stacey: You told her that he was making out with Paulina?
Jamie: Look, I thought I'd be doing her a favor by telling her.
Stacey: How did she react?
Jamie: Jake gave her some spiel about something, and she bought it.
Stacey: So she believed him over you?
Jamie: That's the bottom line.
Stacey: Oh, God, I thought Marley was smarter than that.
Jamie: She has definitely made her choice clear, and apparently, Jake is not changing.
Stacey: What do you mean?
Jamie: Well, Paulina was over earlier, and she told me that Jake had broken up with Marley and that she had taken off for California to recover.
Stacey: No, that doesn't sound like Marley. It sounds like Jake was lying to Paulina.
Jamie: Yeah, and then Donna told me that Marley is in San Francisco raising money for the clinic.
Stacey: Of course. That sounds more like it.
Jamie: And that Jake bought an engagement ring for Marley.
Jamie: I don't know. What I don't understand is why would Jake lie to Paulina? I mean, why would he risk everything with Marley just -- just to string along a pretty girl who works for him?
Stacey: Jamie, you're going round and round about this.
Jamie: Yeah, I know, but I have to find out what Jake McKinnon is up to.
Jake: You know, I fully understand your boss's position, but he has to understand mine. I mean, this entire country is in a recession.
Man: Because people won't pay their debts.
Jake: I don't think it's as simple as that. You see, it's a matter of cash flow, and obviously, mine is negative now.
Man: Inflation will eat you alive if you don't have cash.
Jake: You are obviously a smart guy, and you can walk in here and see what kind of place this is and what kind of guy I am. I fully intend to pay my debts.
Man: Now. My company insists that people be prompt.
Jake: And your company is going to go on the top of the list, but as you can see, muscling won't get you anything. As a matter of fact, I have a deal working tonight, and it will take care of all the cash to your company, but the deal involves a lady -- you get the picture -- and that lady is going to be here any minute. So if you want it to work out, you'll beat it before she comes, ok?
Paulina: This dress. I can't wear it. What if I spill something on it?
Rachel: Oh, you mustn't worry about that.
Paulina: I just won't eat, that's all.
Rachel: I hope this excitement has to do with the party.
Paulina: What else?
Rachel: Jake McKinnon?
Paulina: You know how much I respect you.
Rachel: But you think I'm wrong about Jake.
Paulina: I know you are.
Rachel: How can you be sure?
Paulina: He cares about me, Rachel, a lot more than I thought. If I tell you something, you promise to keep it a secret? I think Jake bought me an engagement ring.
Rachel: I see.
Paulina: Oh, please don't be negative about this.
Rachel: So now you think Jake is going to marry you?
Paulina: Why else would he buy a ring? You know, it's amazing. Every fantasy I ever had is coming true.
